    I tried to look but could not find info, so

    I have two LS licenses, 4-CPU Enterprise owned (on server A) and 2-CPU Enterprise rented (on server B).

    I'm soon moving server A to B, and will later move that 2-CPU rented to yet another server (C).

    1. How do I change server B from 2-CPU rented to 4-CPU owned?

    2. On server A will there be a period while LS still functions after licence is moved to server B (while move/DNS propagation is on progress)?

    Thanks.

    this wiki page
    http://www.litespeedtech.com/suppor...tespeed_wiki:license:transfer_release_license
    should address the issue you mentioned. if not, please point out so we can improve the document.

    the steps should be
    1. on Server A, run /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -m
    2. on Server B, copy the serial.no on Server A, then run
    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -r

    there are 3 overlap days for 4-CPU license to run on Server A and B in parallel.

    Thanks, done and new server has now the owned 4-CPU running fine :)

    In the Wiki there is one odd sentence:
    "Assume you already copied over the same directory over."

    What iit should tell is that
    "Copy current serial.no from old server to the new".

    Now I do not need the rented 2-CPU for about a 3-4 weeks, is there an option to put it "on hold" and pay for it when needed again (next due date is 01/01/2014), or is it just better/easier to cancel it?

    just cancel and reorder if you do not need it now.

    Done :)

    One small wish: please add to log viewer a CSS limit for max-width to td class "log_I2", now e.g. a security log with a long message can push a page 100 times wider than it is, and push also command buttons somewhere there.

    Happy new year!
